TBS has ordered 10 episodes of the comedy game show “Misery Index,” a new unscripted series inspired by the card game Sh*t Happens. Comedy troupe The Tenderloins — Brian “Q” Quinn, James “Murr” Murray, Joe Gatto and Sal Vulcano — creators and stars of truTV’s “Impractical Jokers,” will appear on the series.
The game will feature two teams — each consisting of one contestant and two Tenderloins. Teams will compete against each other by attempting to determine the ranking of hilarious and miserable real-life events — from getting fired to accidentally sexting your grandfather — on a scale of 1-100.
“Misery Index” is developed by comedy writer Andy Breckman (“Monk”), along with Ben & Dan Newmark of Grandma’s House Entertainment. The series is executive produced by Breckman, the Newmarks, Adam Bold of Grandma’s House Entertainment, Howard Klein of 3 Arts Entertainment, and Rob Anderson, who will serve as showrunner.
